ABOUT THIS COMPANY:Straight talk
Like many Texans, this 100-year old firm prides itself on "straight talk." Formed in Houston in 1902 by Frank Andrews and U.S. Congressman Thomas Ball, the firm earned its stripes counseling railroad clients and was integral in forming the Gulf Coast Lines and assisting many other burgeoning railroad entrepreneurs. As longtime counsel to the Hughes Tool Company, Andrews Kurth had front-row seats in the 20-year dispute over the estate of the eccentric Howard Hughes Jr., son of the company's founder.
